About Us

Unlocking potential and changing lives

Who is Avado?

Avado is a professional academy that helps people and businesses through interactive learning experiences in data, marketing, people and agility. Avado builds capabilities and supports real change by offering new skills and mindsets through quality apprenticeships, qualifications, workshops and modules. 

Connected learning

A combination of proven teaching methods that incorporates online, interactive learning with both a tutor and peer support. Connected learning is a flexible and engaging experience built around the learner.

Learning experiences

Learning has the potential to create experiences that have a lasting impact, both personally and professionally. A learning experience is more than a lesson, it involves a fully immersive programme that includes mentoring, interactive online sessions and communication with other students.

Unlocking potential

For some learners, there may be a barrier or block that prevents them from understanding their full potential. Everyone has potential and the Avado learning experience helps learners to unlock confidence, remove barriers and explore endless future possibilities.

Changing lives

For many, Avado empowers and encourages learners to feel confident and able to put real change into action. Real change can take form in various ways. From a professional point of view, changing lives can mean career progression or even a new role entirely, and for those entering the workforce, it can result in the start of a professional journey.
